Farewell to a Great Lady

Former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher has passed away.

There is an excellent 2 minute 28 second biographical video in the linked article that’s a great watch…

RIP Peter Banks

“Who,” many will ask, “was Peter Banks?”

He was an exceptional guitarist who was featured as a member of YES, one of Seth’s 2 or 3 favorite rock bands, {one he introduced to Wolf and I years ago and whose music we came to love as well}, when the band first recorded in 1968 (they are still together today, though they’ve had a number of member changes over the years, and boy, are they ever aging with the rest of us!)

With YES….

After leaving YES, he went on to record with a several other groups, such as FLASH…

…Empire and a few other, lesser known bands as well as a few solo recordings.

Rest in peace, Peter.

The woman singing in the tribute video below is Annie Haslam, the great vocalist who fronted Renaissance.
